    Health and Safety Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Guildford, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Allianz Insurance (Guildford, England (UK)) in July 2020.

    Interview

    Applied via LinkedIn and was initially contacted by telephone for an informal conversation by the hiring manager. A week later I have a remote interview in which took around an hour with questions from the hiring manager and also HR person. Was not an easy interview as I was expecting a technical type of questions and so was slightly thrown by the style of the interview. I was never told the outcome of the interview and assumed that I had not been successful which was disappointing considering I had taken time to meet with them.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Allianz Insurance (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in May 2020.

    Interview

    It was a quick process. HR administered everything well. The first round interview was conducted via zoom due to covid19. I found the interviewers too formal and quite impersonal. Not sure how they would judge personality fit from it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Allianz Insurance (Guildford, England (UK)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Situational judgement
    Video interview
    A/C which included hotel and food.
    Overall pretty good, yet the interview materials weren't very inspiring...a bit rigid. The group assessment was also pretty uninspiring in scope of problem to solve. However, interview technique let me down, which wasn't their fault.

    IT Graduate Scheme Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Guildford, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Allianz Insurance (Guildford, England (UK)) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Initial application included filling out details about yourself e.g. education, cv, experience etc. In the application, you are also required to answer two essay based questions about 200-300 words each. After submitting your application, within 24-48 hours you are invited to the online assessment tests, if you pass the initial screening. The tests will depend on your stream you applied for, in my case it was the 'IT stream, hence my tests were 3 situational tests about potential scenarios I may come across working within Allianz IT department and general business related exercises.

    If you were successful at this stage, you will be than forwarded a link to book yourself for an interview slot after 1 week after your interview. The interview will last around 40-45mins, and is purely based on your reasoning why the role, Allianz, and their core value, so the best is to base your examples and experiences around their values if possible. If you are again successful, you will be invited to for an Assessment Centre (AC). In my case, I got invited to the Horsley Management Centre were you have the option to stay for the night prior the AC, all paid by Allianz including your meals.

    At the beginning of the AC, all candidates were than welcomed by a friendly team and explained the day and tasks ahead. The first task, the business case study was to analyse and review several papers of a case related to 1-2 departments within Allianz. The second tasks involved preparing a presentation based on again the same case study, however, in my case they added couple of more information and data to the existing materials. After both exercises were completed, we had than 1 hour + break and had lunch with the team of Allianz and existing Graduates.

    The third exercise was a group tasks, it was again related to a business case of Allianz e.g. a call centre that experienced several issues internally, and our responsible was to find solutions, how to address these issues. Unfortunately, my team were too competitive in my opinion, hence it took us until the final minute to decide on our solution. The last task, was the final interview. This was again more related about your past experiences. Moreover, the Interviewer was very friendly and explained the role in detail and the potential opportunities within the Allianz.

    Overall, even though I didn't get the role, the feedback was quite useful, as in the first two cases, my main mistake was that I put too much emphasis on a specific part of the case study, and didn't go into much detail e.g. it was too general.

    I guess the only feedback I would give, it that for the IT stream, Allianz should think about having a different format for their IT graduate stream, as I believe the exercises were all more related to the other streams like Sales, Finance, Management etc. During the day, I couldn't really show any my technical capabilities, which I believed would have been more useful for Allianz as I applied for the IT stream.

    Underwriting Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bristol, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Allianz Insurance (Bristol, England (UK)).

    Interview

    40 minute telephone interview with resourcing adviser. CV check and company knowledge finished with 4 competency questions based on high performance behaviours : customer and market excellence, trust, entrepreneurship and collaborative leadership.

    Interview Questions

    • First given an overview of the scheme I had applied to, introduction to the interviewer and what they do etc.
      Talked through aspects of my CV, asking about my previous roles, why I decided to do my university course etc. and what I wanted to do afterwards (a grad scheme obviously?! why else would I be talking to you?).
      Location preferences
      Why did I apply for this role in particular over another Allianz scheme?
      What do I know about Allianz and its products/services?
      What activities do I think this role will involve?
      What challenges do I think I will face in this role?
      What is the name of the qualification I would be taking (ACII) and can I talk about what it involves?
      A time I went above and beyond for a customer
      How I got around challenges of working with a team of different personalities
      What was a big challenge you set yourself and how did you achieve it?
      When have you lead a group of people and provided purpose and direction?

      Each answer was probed with further questions on how/why you made that decision and I was always asked how I would make it better next time/what would I change if it were to happen again.

      Not going to lie, I completely fell apart in this interview and it went really bad. Which was disappointing as I had spent so much time and energy preparing for it and have some really good experiences. I started off OK when talking about the company but just lost it half way through the competency questions and stumbled so not expecting to get through. Only had my interview today so don't know the outcome yet but not holding my breath. Lasted 40 minutes in total which was quite short compared to the 50 minutes he suggested so that's another reason I think it went bad.   Answer Question
